    looking for the perfect snack

    Next weekend I am joining my quilting guild for a wonderful weekend quilt camp. We are supposed to bring a snack. Any ideas? I am leaning towards something like gorp or chex mix but I sure would love hear your ideas.

    Attended a retreat last week and one of the other quilters had purchased a jar of snack mix (crackers, pretzels and nuts. She then replaced some of the mix with candy corn and Hershey chocolate pieces. The chocolate was larger than a dime and smaller than a quarter. It was awesome. Archer Farms made the snack mix. Chocolate is always going.

    Cheese and crackers. If you want something a bit different, try goat cheese. Mix the goat cheese with orange zest (grated) and a dollop of honey. Serve with graham crackers or Wheat Thins.

    Good Old Raisins and Peanuts. Much better with salted peanuts and chocolate added.

    I am gluten free, so I always bring crackers that I can eat.

    Where I live hummus and pita is popular.

    at our retreat the motto is "if it ain't chocolate, don't bother!".........but I also see fruit, crackers and a fabulous dip of cream cheese with honey mustard poured over it. We try to bring things that won't dirty our hands so we can eat and sew at the same time.

    How about Chex Muddy Buddies, (also know as puppy chow). My family loves it!

    The other quilters usually bring sweets, so I always bring a 3 # can of cashews. Very popular, as is the sweets.

    Mix together the deluxe mixed nuts, raisins, dried pineapple chunks, and M&M's. Very good, and at least a little healthy!

    I love cream cheese with cocktail sauce or pepper jelly poured over it with Town House crackers. Really good! But you will have sticky fingers. Put out some hand wipes along side! Have fun! Wish I could come!

    My group loves my old, old favorite of my Grandpa's! When I was a child, he always mixed candy corn and redskin peanuts. I have noticed this year there are several flavors of candy corn! I like the new flavors, but family, not so much! So I will stick to the old plain corn with greasy salted peanuts!

    does anyone remember or know how to make "white trash?" I think it's something with chex and covered with powdered sugar. Can't remember what else. Actually you could put whatever with powdered sugar and there you go!
    Especially like strawberries and other fruit for dipping! yum!

    Chex mix is always popular. Thers a lot of recipes out there. New ones with the new Chex cereals, cinnamon/chocolate.

    I bring a big jar of mixed nuts or smoked almonds.You can always rub off the access salt and there is not a nut that is bad for you unless you are allergic.With the mixes there are a lot of preservatives and carbs I do not want.
    I'm an obsessive compulsive quilter and batik aholic. I make only king size quilts.

    I'm new to the Board, so no avatar yet, but did want to reply to your "white trash" question. Our white trash is a mixture of nuts (whatever you want), small pretzels, m&m's, chex cereal and cheerios (and whatever else I think might taste good). Mix together in large bowl. Melt white chocolate (I use double boiler - sometimes microwave) and pour over your mixture. Mix well. Pour onto waxed paper (makes it easier for me), or in a large flat pan. Let it sit until it's cool, then just break it into pieces. We've used this for years and everyone loves it. And it will keep in the refrigerator, or on the counter, for months. Sorry - I never measure anything, so I can't give amounts.

    This is fantastic! When a friend told me it would be better than the peanut M&M's I thought she was crazy - but she was right on!

    I did fortune cookies and inserted quilt sayings. Went over big!

    One year the Boy Scouts sold big tins of chocolate covered already popped popcorn and it was delicious! I have been looking for it ever since.
